Lucille (Pagani) Boynton, 89, of New Britain, died Aug. 4, 2017, at Jerome Home with her two nieces by her side.
Lucille was born in New Britain on Nov. 27, 1927, and lived in New Britain most of her life. She was the daughter of the late Louis Pagani and Mary Frances (Foldan) Pagani. She was the wife of the late Frank Boynton. She was predeceased by her sister, Olga (Pagani) Bigley, and a brother, John A. Pagani. She was also predeceased by her first husband, Frank McGuiness.
Lucille was a graduate of New Britain High School and worked for the New Britain Gas Light Company, which was acquired by Connecticut Natural Gas Corporation, as a secretary in the Sales Department. She retired in 1990 after many years of service. She also belonged to various women’s clubs and was active at St. Maurice Church. Lucille was a faithful fan of the UConn women’s basketball team and never failed to miss watching a game. She was a soft-spoken, kind, compassionate woman. Her gentle and kind ways endeared her to the wonderful doctors, nurses, aides and all the other caregivers at Jerome Home, who took care of her when she was no longer able to live unassisted.
She is survived by her two nieces, Patricia A. Pagani (Kenneth Fernino) and Maureen P. Ludko (George), her great-nephew, Christopher Ludko, and great-niece, Elena Curry (James).
